US Build Up In Syria Prep For War With Iran?

Although reports on the conflict in Syria say forces of the US led coalition are poised push ISIS out of its remaining stronghold in Syria, the city of Raqqa, which as declared the capital of the "Islamic Caliphate" back in 2013, and in Iraq government troops, supported by Iranian elite regiments and Russian air cover are engaged in mopping up operations after the last ISIS terrorists were driven out of Mosul, a degree of scepticism is, as always, necessary when considering news out of Syria.

The U.S. and its allied forces had entrenched themselves in the southeastern Syrian border town of al-Tanaf, in the hope of cutting off a major highway linking Damascus to Baghdad and thus gaining control of all south east Syria. Althogh Washington is now claiming that defeating ISIS is the only objective of the US military action inside Syria, we should keep in mind that right up until the end of his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama regularly repeated that his priority in Syria was to depose Assad. So what are those American troops doing there, blocking a vital artery connecting two Arab allied states in their own fight against terrorism? Well irrefutable evidence exists that US efforts against ISIS were at best half hearted, in fact three years of US - NATO efforts against ISIS achieved nothing, three months of action by Russia and Iran in support of Assad had the terrorists retreating on all fronts.

“Our presence in al-Tanaf is temporary,” Col. Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the Combined Joint Task Force of Operation Inherent Resolve (CTFO-OIR), said of the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS, via phone from Baghdad. “Our primary reason there is to train partner forces from that area for potential fights against ISIS elsewhere…and to maintain security in that border region and de - escalation zones agreed with Russia.” The Russian Foreign Affairs department say they know nothing of such zones and have certainly never agreed to the esablishment of such areas.

He was speaking truth, as Moon Of Alabama reports:

The U.S. is giving up its hopeless position at the Syrian-Iraq border crossing near al-Tanf in south east Syria. The U.S. military had earlier bombed Syrian forces when they came near that position but it then found itself outmaneuvered, cut off from the north and enclosed in a useless area.

Al-Tanf is in the blue area with the two blue arrows at the bottom of the map. It will soon be painted red as liberated and under Syrian government control.The U.S. is giving up its hopeless position at the Syrian-Iraq border crossing near al-Tanf in south east Syria.

Al-Tanf is in the blue area with the two blue arrows at the bottom of the map. It will soon be painted red as liberated and under Syrian government control.

Syria, showing strategic importance of US position

The U.S. plan was to move from al-Tanf north towards the Euphrates river and to thereby capture and control the whole south-east of Syria. But Syria and its allies made an unexpected move and prevented that plan. The invaders are now cut off from the Euphrates by a Syrian west-to-east line that ends at the Iraqi border. On the Iraqi side elements of the Popular Military Unites under the command of the Iraqi government are moving to meet the Syrian forces at the border.

The U.S. invaders are now sitting in the mid of a piece of rather useless desert around al-Tanf where their only option is to die of boredom or to move back to Jordan from where they came.

Since May 18, when U.S. airstrikes first targeted Syrian military columns approaching al-Tanaf, American forces have shot down two Syrian drones and bombarded Syrian - Iranian troops several times, citing “self-defense” in justification of each incident In that same period, however, it appears that the al-Tanaf-based U.S. backed "moderate rebels" have notengaged ISIS fighters at any time.

Bouthaina Shaaban, political and media advisor to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, questions that rhetoric: “When asked what they’re doing in the south of Syria, they say they’re there for their ‘national security,’ but then they object to the movements of the Syrian army – inside Syria?”

She is correct. As this blog has stated many times, under the terms of the United Nations charter and international law, any foreign military presence in a sovereign state is illegal "unless specifically invited by the recognized governing authority," and as President Assad of Syria has stated many times, while Russian and iranian troops are in Syria legitimately, having be asked to assist in combating ISIS by the Syrian government, the US - NATO coalition have no business there at all and are legitimate targets for Syrian and Iranian bullets and Russian fighter planes. The invaders are trying to circumvent the law by claiming that Syria is “unable or unwilling” to fight ISIS and the threat to international security it poses. But “unwilling and unable” is clearly not the case as Syria has done much better against ISIS since warning from Russia's President Putin put a stop the the USA and Turkey's arming and funding the terrorists.

An April 2017 report by IHS Markit, the leading UK security and defense information provider, asserts that the Islamic State fought Syrian government forces more than any other opponent over the past 12 months. “Between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2017,” says the organization, “43 percent of all Islamic State fighting in Syria was directed against President Assad’s forces, 17 against the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and the remaining 40 percent involved fighting rival Sunni opposition groups – in particular, those who formed part of the Turkey-backed Euphrates Shield coalition.”

In other words, during the period when IS territorial losses were most significant, Syrian forces fought ISIS more than twice as often as U.S.-backed ones. Which accords with our reports that regime change was always the US priority and while Obama was in power his love of Muslim extremists afforded ISIS a level of protection.

France to 'ban all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040'

France plans to impose a total ban on all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040, its new environment minister, Nicolas Hulot, has announced. We told you after the French elections the new president, the grandmotherfucker Macron, was a clueless idiot who would continue the same politically correct globalist agenda that led to the failure of his predecessor Francois Holland's government and the near complete collapse of the socialist party.

The unrealistic plan was one of a series M. Hulot revealed at a press conference this morning as part of French president Emmanuel Macron's plans to make France a carbon neutral country by 2050. All around the developed world, sustainable energy experiments are failing, with only the long established hydro - electric technology and nuclear fission as realistically reliable energy sources for clean electricity there is nothing to support such ludicrous claims. There is however, plenty of evidence to show Macron's government is descending into farce even more quickly than that of socialist Francois Holland. With the 'scientific' case supporting Carbon Dioxide driven global warming in ruins (see article below), this latest idiocy merely compounds the impression that France is being run by a bunch of student protestors.

Can it be coincidence that President Macron's environment minister is the namesake of comedian Jaques Tati's greatest creation, the shambolic Monsieur Hulot, a sort of proto - Mr. Bean (video clip: Mr Hulot's holiday.)


Hulot, the apprentice politician, a former star wildlife TV presenter, announced "the end of the sale of petrol or vehicles between now and 2040."

French car owners will be offered financial inducements to scrap their conventional vehicles - including second-hand ones - for clean, green, pimped - up mobility scooters, he said, without providing more details.

Mr Hulot cited the example of a "European maker" who had already decided to go electric. This was a reference to Volvo, which on Wednesday announced plans to build only electric and hybrid vehicles starting in 2019, making it the first major car manufacturer to abandon cars and SUVs powered solely by the internal combustion engine.

CEO Hakan Samuelsson told reporters the move was prompted by customer demand although other makers are not reporting any rush to buy overpriced, underperforming electric cars. He pledged that in two years, all new Volvo vehicles will have some form of electric propulsion. This is obviously a lie, we know Swedes are politically correct to the point of stupidity and beyond, but sales of electric vehicles are only increasing marginally year on year in spite of government subsidies to buyers. When Denmark ended tax subsidies on electric vehicles, raising prices for 2017 sales by 40%, sales plummeted to less than half of what they were.

"The solutions are there, our own makers have in their boxes the means to fulfill this promise," said Mr Hulot, calling it a "public health" issue. Well maybe the solutions are out there, but not in Denmark obviously.


One of the solutions? I will not be giving up my sports car any time soon. (image source: The Independent)

France is by no means the only country aiming to ban combustion-powered cars in some form. Germany wants to do away with 100 per cent combustion-powered vehicles by 2030, as does India. The Netherlands and Norway wish to do so by 2025.

It was not immediately clear if Mr Hulot meant a ban on even partially petrol or diesel-powered vehicles.

The minister also said that France will stop producing power from coal-power stations - now five per cent of the total - by 2022. The country also wants to reduce the proportion of its power from nuclear to 50 percent by 2025, from the current 75 per cent.
